I am beyond excited about the upcoming Disney release of The Great & Powerful Oz. The Wizard of Oz is still one of my all time favourite movies and I have no doubt this prequel will answer some of my many questions about that magical original cinematic masterpiece. The fact it stars James Franco is just the cherry on top of a very large ice cream sundae. But leaving that aside for the moment, I am now even more excited to hear that the next movie alignment for OPI will in fact be this Disney hit-to-be. That’s right, there will be a nail polish collection for The Great & Powerful Oz …. and I have the first look, sneak peek for you today!  Continue Reading

On Saturday I showed you the first glimpse of Mariah Carey’s upcoming nail polish collection with OPI. This is the first of two collections she will be creating with the mega nail brand and today I am super excited to show you the bottle images for the entire 8-piece collection.

Mariah Carey by OPI

Not a thrilling name but the Mariah Carey by OPI Collection (part 1) does contain some thrilling shades. The collection is broken down into two parts. The first are the Studio Shades which includes 1 dazzling glitter, 1 shimmer and 2 creme nail polishes. The second part are the Stage Shades, which I showed you on Saturday and feature the innovative new Liquid Sand texture.

Shade Details

Here are the official descriptions by OPI of the new shades.  Continue Reading

I have to admit I am not the biggest fan of Mariah Carey or her music. I was more in to rock music during her heyday and I found her squealing to be a little irritating. Having said that, now that she is collaborating with OPI on her own nail polish collection that may just change my opinion of her.

The first image has just been released showing Liquid Sand, one uniquely textured subcategory to her collection. In August, WWD reported that Mariah Carey had signed on for two collections. The first collection is scheduled to be released globally in January and includes eight new shades. The second collection is scheduled for later in 2013 but the number of shades are yet to be announced.

Today OPI released the following image showing four of the new nail polishes slated to come out this January. Liquid Sand has been dubbed as OPI’s latest innovation, and describes itself as a matte glitter texture. It sounds super strange to me but I can’t wait to get my hands on some to play with.   Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
